Modi blames Congress for partition

Howard TerryFeb 10, 2018

The leader also attacked Defence Minister and said, "She says that we won't tell the country about the deal". PM added the Congress, which took the UPA, "hastily" separated the southern state for political benefits.

"I mean to claim credit for example lowering the price of solar panels when everyone knows that worldwide solar panel prices have gone down", he said. Shedding light on UID, Modi pointed out that Aadhaar is not a new concept.

Sonia Gandhi, the widow of former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, has been of late being unwell and was hospitalised a number of times in the past three years. "You closed parliament's doors without heeding the people's wishes, the seeds you sowed at that time, its ramifications are being felt to this day", he said in the Lok Sabha.

"The speech of Saheb (Modi) was very long".

The BJP was running away from answering questions but Rahul Gandhi was forcing it to be accountable, the Congress' Rajasthan unit chief said.

The Prime Minister was replying to a debate in the Rajya Sabha on the Motion of Thanks to the President's address to the joint sitting of both the Houses of Parliament yesterday.

"Questions are being asked by the country from the prime minister, but he is not answering". He said in the last one year 70 lakh people have registered in EPF.

But while stressing that her son is in charge, Sonia Gandhi also made it clear that she would take the lead in rallying other parties against the ruling BJP ahead of national elections that follow a series of state polls this year. I ask you shouldn't Tripura be able to avail the minimum wages facility?

Launching a tirade against the Congress, Modi said he was pursuing Mahatma Gandhi's dream of a "Congress-mukt Bharat" and accused the grand old party of eulogising the Gandhi family when in power, at the cost of India's development. Did you give more money or less? "We will no doubt see it again in Karnataka", she said.

Amidst continuous pandemonium, the PM said the Opposition has the right to protest but not disrupt it.

The veteran Congress leader was referring to PM Modi's interview on January 19 where he had said, "If a person sells "pakodas" and takes home Rs 200 every evening, is that not employment?"

Amid the din, an unfazed Prime Minister alleged Andhra Pradesh was suffering due to the "hasty decision" of the erstwhile UPA Government to bifurcate the State in 2014 for "political benefits". He said, if Sardar Patel would have been the first Prime minister of the country, entire Jammu and Kashmir would have been ours.
